The family physician can provide his patient with useful information to help him decide in favor of or against a total hip replacement procedure. This also applies to the choice of the most suitable endoprosthetic system, such pre-operative measures as discontinuation or change of medication, and the assessment of possible perioperative or postoperative complications.
